Few moments ago, the Syrian army, Hezbollah and Liwa al-Quds liberated the key Aleppo district of Sheikh Saeed.
The army and its allies are also advancing against Jaish al-Fatah and Fatah Haleb militants in the districts of Bustan al-Qaser and al-Ameria.
Government forces renewed military operations in the city of Aleppo today noon after yesterday’s success in the areas southeast of the Aleppo Citadel.
There are reports that the militant forces leadership (mainly members of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham – formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda) have requested the Syrian military for a safe passage from the city via the Castello Highway.
The Syrian Defense Ministry has not commented on the issue.
